My Melbourne Cup day at Randwick Racecourse

It was a great day at Randwick Racecourse for the final day of the Sydney spring racing carnival on Tuesday 1 November 2016.

You could enjoy live racing action by the trackside plus watch all that is happening at Flemington on the big screen. There were many themed bars, live entertainment, and premium food stalls.

For lunch we checked out The Mews by Delicious Magazine on the Octagonal Lawn and had their pork roll. We teamed it up with the new (low carb) Heineken 3 beer from their themed bar and a knafeh (which is a cheese and cream dessert) from the Knafeh Bakery.

There was no Fashion on the Field competition but I still dressed up with a white, pink and peach floral dress and matching headpiece from Review Australia. I paired the headpiece and dress with a pearl necklace and bracelet, white pointed toe heels and a white clutch.

I choose the outfit because of the light colours and florals that are so appropriate for spring racing. The colours also suit my light complexion. The style is classic and suitable for racewear. It is the right length (to the knees) and does not inappriopriatly exposing the upper part of my body. I always tell people that when they go to the races they should dress like they would for a church wedding, not a nightclub.

I find Review Australia is the most suitable brand for racewear. Review Australia designs classic, elegant and feminine pieces that allow a woman to get dressed up during the day. The biggest bonus is that they also make matching headpieces, where, unless your wearing black and/or white, it is almost impossible to find a matching headpiece off the shelf and you have to spend a lot ordering a custom piece instead.
